"Our family loves FCCNS. Our children enjoy all activities they do through out the day. It is very clear to see how much the teachers love each child. We are happy with all the fun things the kids get to do everyday even as infants.  We are happy with all the fun things the kids get to do everyday even as infants.  FCCNS has lots of fun events throughout the year that allow families to be involved with their children's day, like 4th of July parade, Mother's and Father's Day events, Grandparent's Day, etc.  We would highly recommend FCCNS (and have)." ~Amy


"I have had an extremely positive experience at Faith Child Care. All three of my children have attended the program and it has been a positive experience for all. I am especially impressed with the kind and caring staff, both in the classroom and on the administrative end. I feel very comfortable and secure sending my children to Faith and knowing that they will be taken care of during the day and ready for kindergarten in the fall." ~Kara


“I feel very secure when I leave my children each morning – I’m able to go to work knowing they’re safe and receiving quality care and attention from caring and qualified teachers and individuals.”


"I think about my children during the day while they are at FCCNS, but I don't worry about them."


“To refer to everyone at FCCNS as ‘staff’ would seem inappropriate and impersonal. It is more a family-like environment with caring individuals taking a specific and genuine interest in the care and development of my child and trying to maximize their learning potential while at the same time instilling Christian-based values."

our goals

Our teachers work with your child in every area of their development, making sure that they will be ready for Kindergarten.
